About Us

Our Business

Music 440 is a Brisbane based, independently owned guitar shop that has been operating since 2004 as a physical shop. We have now entered the online retail world with this new killer website, to be able to offer our great products and exceptional service to the rest of Australia. Our team all play guitar, and have done for many years, making us extremely knowledgeable on a wide range of product, as well as maintenance, rig setup, tone shaping, and pretty much anything else related to guitars.

Our Honest Approach

When you purchase from Music 440 you can be sure you are getting a quality product that we would play or use ourselves, and that we personally like. We stock many of the big brands that everyone knows, as well as some smaller, less known brands that we have personally chosen due to their quality, performance, and value.

We strive to provide every customer with the fantastic service you deserve. Whether you come in to our physical shop, or purchase from our online store, be sure that we will provide you with the great service that only a small, specialist shop can provide.

Our customer’s excitement excites us. We love seeing you take home that instrument of your dreams. If you are happy, we are happy, and that’s how it should be! We will do whatever we can to help you make the important decisions to make sure you are getting exactly what you need, and just as important, what you don’t need.

Guitar is our life, and hopefully we can be part of making it yours too!
